I don't often keep tabs on debut novels/authors. Since I keep feeling like I'm behind on reading all the books I want to read, I more often than now focus on books already published... specifically available through the library or at a cheaper, discounted price. After all, it's not like I have all the money in the world for buying books (though we all wish we did, I'm sure).
So while I have a list of books being published in 2015 that happen to be debut author novels, they don't often excite me as much as sequels or books written by authors I already love. But the interest is still there.

I have a feeling that 2015 will be another good year. There are a lot of series I've been following that will be concluding, and then there are some other books being released in 2015 that I'm interested in. For years I've always felt the need to read more books during their year of publication, but I never get around to them. One of my goals each year is to read more newly published books for that year.
Hopefully this will be the year I can read a satisfactory number of new publications.
